As a long (long) time Bethesdan, I have a real craving for Pines of Rome. Does anyone know if it's as crowded as it used to be? Should I expect a wait at 7 or 7:30 on a Friday or Saturday night? Or have the many expansions plus increased restaurant competition generally lightened the load?
And all you PoR haters...keep it to yourselves. If you can't enjoy the white pizza with fontina cheese, marinated peppers with garlic and anchovy, whole grilled fish, linguini with sweet sausage and red sauce, and veal saltimbuca while drinking cheap red wine out of a jelly jar than you just don't get it.
